Man Uses Neosporin to Treat Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound to the Head


They say Neosporin is great for just about any type of injury, given its seemingly magical healing powers. But I had no idea that applied to gunshot wounds to the head.

A rather self-relient Alaska man made that discovery on his own, after “accidentally” shooting himself in the noggin with a .22 long rifle. For reasons undisclosed, he decided not to seek professional medical attention, and instead treated his “serious but not life-threatening” head injury with Neosporin and other household items.

Five days later, the man finally decided to make his way over to the hospital. So, helpful as it may have been, I guess Neosporin isn’t that magical after all. It might have helped this guy though:
